You have been pregnant for a little while now, but you’re still pretty much in the dark as to what your baby looks like. You were briefly able to have a sneak peek during your medical ultrasound (dating scan). Beautiful as this experience was, the images were in black/white. What do you think your baby is really going to look like? Will he have chubby little cheeks and will he look like mummy or daddy? You can now get a really accurate image of your little one thanks to a 3D/4D ultrasound. The absolute best way of becoming acquainted with your baby and an experience you can share with your nearest and dearest. Please note! There is a risk that we won’t be able to get a good look at your baby if the placenta is positioned at the front. In that case we would recommend getting in touch with us first.
A 3D/4D ultrasound is an extraordinary experience, you will see your unborn child live and three or four dimensionally on screen. The in-depth colour images will allow you to get a really good impression of what your little one will look like. You can truly enjoy everything that’s going on inside your bump in a very relaxed atmosphere. You’ll be able to see your baby with ‘volume’ during this non-medical ultrasound and will pay specific attention to her face. With a bit of luck, the baby will do a nice little pose of us and you’ll be able to see the entire face. It has happened that we could spot tiny facial expressions during the 3D/4D ultrasound: a smile, pouting, looking cross, yawning and thumb sucking. The 3D/4D images are in pink tones.
This non-medical ultrasound is meant to be a very special experience. You can therefore certainly bring your nearest and dearest along to share the experience. We will spend approximately 30 minutes looking at your baby with our ultrasound equipment and try to get the best possible images of the baby. The best period for a 3D/4D ultrasound is between the 24th and 30th week. Your baby will then have plenty of subcutaneous fat, so you can get a good look at the little cheeks. Are you expecting twins or more? Then it’s best to have this ultrasound done around the 15th week. It’s actually considerably harder to do the 3D/4D ultrasound once your baby starts to descend. Our tip: always come to your appointment with a full bladder. This will push your baby’s head up slightly.
There are times when the non-medical ultrasound isn’t as effective as it should be, possibly because your baby is not in a good position. It goes without saying our sonographers will always do their best to conduct a successful scan. And we are happy to say that mostly, with a little bit of wiggling, we achieve wonderful images of the unborn baby. Should we, however, still end up with less optimal results, as your baby may simply not turn into the right position, then we’ll be happy to arrange a follow-up appointment of another 15 minutes for just € 15.
Are you curious about your unborn child? Then the 3D/4D ultrasound truly is an incredible experience. This non-medical ultrasound will take approximately 30 minutes and costs € 100.
Our staff at Het Haagse Hof look forward to welcoming you to one of the two centrally located centres in The Hague. You can meet your baby in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Book an appointment for a 3D/4D ultrasound now.
